If the State Has Temporary or Permanent Custody of My Child, What Can I Do?
If your parental rights have been terminated or are in the process of being terminated by your state, it is in your best interest to contact an attorney immediately. Typically, when your rights have already been terminated or are in the process of being terminated, you only have a specific amount of time to have the court reconsider their decision to terminate your right.
Typically, once your parental rights have been terminated, your legal options are quite limited regarding regaining full custody of your child.
However, if the removal of your child was temporary, then you need to be prepared to do whatever it is that the court requires for you to do to regain your full parental rights. Typically, the court may require parents to enter drug rehabilitation or therapy, find stable housing, or find steady employment. In most instances, if you follow the court’s order, your child will likely be returned to your custody. Keep in mind that the legal system does not want to separate families and takes the termination of parental rights very seriously. Instead, the court’s primary concern is ensuring that children are placed in the best setting possible.
